EURAPS/AAPS Fellowship

Scope of the Fellowship

To foster the relationship between EURAPS (European Association of Plastic Surgeons) and AAPS (American Association of Plastic Surgeons), EURAPS voted to award two 1-month fellowships to two European Plastic Surgeons to improve their mastery in plastic surgery by visiting one or two selected American Plastic Surgery Centers.


Candidates must be fully accredited (EC) and actively practicing Plastic Surgery in Europe for less than 10 years. They must be able to communicate well in both written and spoken English.


The following documents must be sent to before December 1st, each year:

1. C.V.
2. A letter from the candidate describing their proposed program and motivation
3. The names of the chosen Institute. The candidate may propose up to two Institutes but may state a preference
4. A letter of acceptance from the welcoming Institute
5. The names of two Sponsors (EURAPS Full Members)


A Committee appointed by the EURAPS General Assembly will consider the applications and choose the most suitable candidates.


Two fellowships will be awarded every year to two candidates (one each). The fellowship must be completed before the end of the following year. A forfeit allowance of €3.000 for each candidate, will be granted to cover all expenses for the duration of 1 month.
The Secretary General of EURAPS will give notification of the winner to the Head of the host Institute and to the Candidates before March 15th of the following year.
